The 1.4.4 patch is out now, which makes some improvements and fixes some remaining issues in the 1.4 content update. Patch notes below:

- Added Elliott's 14-heart not properly working in non-English languages.
- Fixed a data entry issue that caused some fish ponds to use incorrect data.
- Fixed the Shrimp Enthusiast Shirt applying the wrong shirt artwork.
- Fixed a softlock when watching the 2nd Fall [spoiler]movie[/spoiler] in a non-English languages.
- Fixed the cursor not appearing in the level up profession selector if the Controller Style Menus option is toggled off while using a controller.
- Unsuccessfully crafting an unstackable item while already holding an item on your cursor no longer grants you credit for crafting it.
- Fixed an issue where Garden Pots would consume seeds without planting them if they were planted from more than a tile away.

- Fixed the logic for fruit tree obstruction checking the wrong tile.

- Adjusted some NPC gift reactions (Vincent and Jas now dislike Triple Shot Espresso, Dwarf now loves Lemon Stone, and Sam now enjoys concession stand Joja Cola.)
- Adjusted Desert map so that crab pots placed in the water no longer render incorrectly, and objects can no longer be placed on top of the Desert Trader.
- Removed Catfish from Willy's fishing quests during Winter, as it's impossible to catch one without a Rain Totem.

So I'd like to thank all of you here for your support over the past 4 years and for making this possible. I hope to keep bringing you many more hours of fun and magic w/ Stardew Valley and beyond!
Hope you're enjoying the 1.4 update, and as always, thanks for playing Stardew Valley!
